Hey there.

I had a discussion about my coursework with my mother, and afterward, we started talking about how I would always fold or wring my hands whenever I walked, particularly when we went out shopping last week or, in the past, many times throughout middle and high school. She suggested that she really wanted me to not do that while walking, and the talk ended up bringing me to these articles:

My mother believes I don't look comfortable folding or wringing my hands while walking and that I look like I could be a victim or target. Instead, she suggested that I try keeping my arms to my sides and moving them in stride while walking.

What are your thoughts on posture and walking confidently? What do you feel you can do to be comfortable in your own skin?
